Honey Dew Log Lodge
Reviewed 23 May 2009

Just returned from a cousin's reunion in Door County. Had seen this home on the internet, seemed to be just perfect for a group of 10-12. Most correspondence was handled through email, although I did call to question the reviews and what others had said. I hoped any previous issues reported had been resolved and felt very comfortable making the reservation.

The house is wonderful, not enough can be said about it. Furnishings were great, kitchen fully loaded with all appliances needed. 3.5 bathrooms were just right for the 10 of us, hot tub was fabulous for our group.

May is an off month for renting, you never know what to expect for temperatures in this area. Only complaint was the lodge was warm most days. The lodge is heated by radiant heat, fired up from a source that needed to be stoked. During our 4 days, that was the only time we saw any of the family onsite.

Would highly recommend anyone renting this home, understanding it is someone's property, and just like your own, demands tlc.

Thanks to the owners for opening your home to us!

I was shocked with the owners and (their extended family), because they treated this lodge as if it was their own home. They were at the house everyday!! (mowing the lawn on two of those days), just snooping around. When I rent a place to stay, I appreciate that the owners are available,if needed, not that they are around everyday seeing what is going on. It was stated on the day they we left that they were not happy that we were up til 2am in the morning!! You are kidding right??
They also made a comment that the garage door was open and now they will have to spray because flies probably got in!! They need a list of their rules put on their website so people will know what they can and cannot do! It really was unbelievable!!!
They have a website that shows some of the pictures with information but clearly, many things are omitted! Like the 2nd bed on the first floor,that is in the alcove. It is actually a bed in a corner of the home, that does not have any closets or even a door!! If you do not read their site closely, there are many things that will be quite a surprise when you arrive.
Complaints were made from the owners that they did not like to rent out their place for less than a week. Why then at the beginning of the year when I booked this place for only 4 days wasn't that made clear instead of the day we left??
We were then told of many of their families sad stories. That is really none of our concern. We all have a story to tell, that is not what we want to hear when we are on vacation!
Beautiful setting, but there is no way with this management that I would ever stay here again or suggest it to anyone! There are many other choices of beauty in Door County to stay without the stress.

This lodge is a log cabin with three different rental possibilities. (Upper, main and basement) The lodge itself and the grounds are very beautiful and loaded with amenities.

Problem 1 - When it came time to settle-up, the rates quoted were not what we were being demanded to pay. The owners reluctantly after much debate reduced their demands to those stated on their printed brochure that was in the lodge.

Problem 2 - We had informed the owners, in February, that we were having a family reunion with half the family staying at the lodge and other members staying at varying places nearby. At checkout time we were confronted about having additional people over! There was absolutely zero damage done to the premises! We vacuumed all the carpets, emptied the trash, washed the dishes, cleaned the refrigerator and washed/folded the towels they supplied.

Problem 3 - When we arrived we were told we had to supply our own bath towels! (They had sent the confirmation letter, stating this, to the wrong address and hand delivered it the day after we arrived.) We have rented multiple proerties over the years and have never been requested to bring bath towels especially when flying half way across the country! They proudly told us that they had graciously provided us with one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom. (There were eight of us at the lodge for four nights)

Until the last day, when we had the extremely uncomfortable and heated confrontation with the owners, we had had a wonderful time and had talked about renting the lodge again next year for our annual reunion. What could have been a great experience was soured by the disorginization and conflicting information on the last day.

We won't return......
